Aim: Several techniques of scleral fixated-intraocular lens have been developed. We evaluate visual outcomes and safety of two different techniques of scleral fixated-intraocular lens in the setting of postoperative and post-traumatic aphakia. Methods: This retrospective study included 22 eyes of 22 patients, who had secondary IOL implantation surgery. The data including demographic data, ocular history, indication for surgery, preoperative and postoperative best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), intraocular pressure, detailed anterior and posterior segment evaluation using slit lamp bi-microscopy and indirect ophthalmoscopy were collected. The mean follow-up was 12 months ± 5.2 (SD) (range 12-16 months). Results: Overall, the final BCVA improved in 19 (86%) eyes, did not changed in 2 (9%), and worsened in 1 (4.5%) eye. No significant differences in BCVA were found in two techniques (p<0.2). Conclusion: Both techniques of scleral fixated PCIOL are feasible methods of managing post-traumatic and postoperative aphakia. However, functional outcomes are diverse, especially in post-traumatic cases. Longer follow-up in large population is required. Careful selection of cases and surgical method should be made before operation.
